I’m about to help you become the ROCKSTAR you really are by showing you how to create trust. Why? Well, People buy from you, offer help, and grant rewards based on trust. I have 5 steps you can take to increase your success and your influence by creating trust with your team and colleagues. While we do most of these things, missing even one of them can ruin it all. Once you have it down consistently, then model it for others.
Here they are:
  • Be Dependable

            Deliver what you promise and promise only what you can deliver. Report
            delays immediately. * Be on time. Leave early for appointments. Set
            realistic deadlines allowing for the unexpected. * Show courtesy by
            returning phone calls. * Be predictable. Use self control: anger repels and
            scares others.

  • Listen

            Show interest and respect by paying attention to what the other person is
            saying. * Ask questions. Then make it easy to answer them. * Accept the
            other person’s ideas as valid, even if you disagree. Avoid listening through
            filters of what you want to hear. * Be open to new ideas. Realize that you
            could always know more.

  • Be Honest

            Tell the truth. Lies demean the teller more than they fool the listener. * Act
            with integrity. Make decisions as if you had to deal with all of the
            consequences, treat others with respect, and choose actions that add value
            for everyone.

  • Provide Data

            Tell stories that show past achievements. Quote compliments. * Collect
            data. Keep a victory file of successes, testimonial letters, and other good
            news. If necessary, ask for testimonials, references, and compliments. *
            Create data. Plan good deeds that lead to complimentary stories.

  • Take the High Road
            Help others perform at their best. Give without
            expecting a return favor. * Do good things
            because that makes the world a better place. *
            Show courage during uncertainty. * Seek the
            good in others. * Trust others, because this
            shows that you expect to be
